Learn the fundamentals and application of painting in soft pastel, gouache, watercolor and Direct Oil Painting method. Discover essential techniques while practicing painting from your photo references, observation, memory or imagination. Learn about different surfaces such as Vellum, Mylar, Oil paper, Panel, Canvas and Linen Watercolor paper, and Toned Papers, brands of soft pastel, gouache, watercolor and oil paint. Historical Painters who worked in soft pastel, gouache, watercolor and oil.

You may choose to work with one medium over another. You dont have to buy all the materials. I will do live demos in gouache, watercolor, soft pastel and oil. We will have individual critiques and closer to the end of the 7 weeks we will have a group critique. Each week you will be introduced to a contemporary or historical artist who has worked in either of those mediums. You will have your studio time in this class too.
